This six-week class is the culmination of our nine part series on identity. Previous participation in the Pieces of Me series is not required. Through identity wheels, dialogue, readings, and writing exercises, we will begin to explore the concept of intersectionality in order to bring our full selves into our writing. Participants will leave with a workshopped personal essay or short story.
Families welcome. Coffee and snacks provided. Teens are welcome to attend with an older relative. We will provide simple activities to keep young children occupied.
Who Should Register?
Write Down the Street has a special focus on making the creative writing workshop more accessible to those who face challenges due to cost, language skills, lack of access to transportation, and other barriers. We believe that all voices must be spotlighted with the range and fullness they deserve.
These programs are offered tuition-free thanks to the support of generous donors who are committed to our mission of ensuring all voices are heard.
